Hey hey hey!

This party planning has consumed me in every way possible lol! I’ve been on Pinterest or Etsy getting ideas for her big day and so far I haven’t liked anything. I am so picky with everything but that's what I get because then I have to actually think hard (lol) and figure out how everything will come together my way. So I have decided to hand make the decorations because either nothing online catches my eyes or its super expensive. I'm glad to say though that most of her decorations are done!...Yay!! I like to plan my kids birthdays 2-3 months in advance because that way I’m not going all psycho the day of the party and I am always changing my mind about things so its best! I use to be a sales coordinator for a hotel, so the best way I know I'll accomplish this party is to make a checklist that way I am prepared for the event!
